Food Trip Friday--Haruka's 5th Birthday

Double Berry Rare Cheese Cake

Haruka planned a simple birthday party at home herself telling me what kind of cake and foods she wanted. Haruka requested for a Ikura Inari sushi ( salmon roe sushi, her favorite ) and made three varieties coz my husband ain't a fan of seafood and the birthday girl also requested for a cheese cake and made a no bake rare cheesecake decorated with blueberry and strawberry fruits on top for her--it only requires a lil time of chilling and is easy to prepare at home. I'm happy about the outcome of my cake and my family likes 'em! While waiting for the cake's chilling time, we went out to buy Haruka a gift ( new bicycle ) at the nearby bicycle shop and hubby opted for a Yakitori party at home and then bought some yakitori (skewered grilled chicken) at the supermarket after. I wasn't busy in the kitchen that day coz I always have soboro ( seasoned ground meat) stocked in my fridge and is handy for my soboro inari sushi that day. Here's how I prepared my Soboro Inari Sushi and my Soboro Bentou recipe if you like--you can also make donburi out of that recipe.
I'm also sharing the recipe for the Double Berry Rare Cheese Cake for it's really easy to make ^_^

Double Berry Rare Cheese Cake
250g Cream Cheese, softened
100cc Plain Yogurt
200cc Fresh cream

40g Sugar
2 tbsp Lemon juice

8g Powder gelatin
3 tablespoon Water

1 package of Graham crackers
40g Butter

Fresh strawberry and blueberry fruits ( thawed if frozen )

You'll also need a rolling pin and a plastic bag.

*option: you can also use your favorite jam if you don't like fresh fruits to your rare cheese cake. Cut a slice of cake, add jam as topping and serve.*

1: First make a graham cracker crust ( you can also use oreo cookie if you like ) take a package of graham crackers and place it in a plastic bag. Roll over it with a rolling pin mashing it into the crumbs. Melt the butter in a microwave. In a medium bowl, add your graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and mix it together. Press the crumbs into the bottom of a round cake pan (18 cm) using a spoon. I would also suggest to chill the crust after.
2: Mix powder gelatin and water in a small cup and set aside. Stir cream cheese in a bowl until softened. Put water and gelatin mixture into microwave and heat for a minute. Add yogurt, sugar, fresh cream, lemon juice and gelatin into softened cream cheese and mix well. Pour the filling into the crust and spread evenly then refrigerate until set.
3: Top with fresh berries^_^
Soboro( seasoned ground meat) Inari Sushi, Ikura (salmon roe) Inari Sushi and Plain Inari Sushi
